DIVA Eye Institute has been the frontrunner in bringing the latest technology for the permanent removal of glasses. Ever since we started the LASIK surgery back in 1994, Dr. Dipan Desai has been a pioneer performing this surgery. We pride ourselves in being the only all-inclusive refractive center with all the modalities required to correct refractive errors. We offer LASIK, Topography-Guided LASIK, Bladeless Femto-LASIK as well as ReLEx SMILE. We offer the most experienced surgeons for all the above procedures.
LASIK (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ-Keratomileusis) treats refractive errors by folding back the top layer of the eye and re-shaping tissue underneath. Surgeons will either use a mechanical instrument called a microkeratome, or a femtosecond laser to create the flap. After the flap is folded back, an excimer laser treats the eye for the individual refractive error. The laser only ablates the necessary tissue, leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected.
ReLEx Smile treats refractive errors by creating a lenticule by laser without creating any flap through a very small 2 mm keyhole incision only instead of a 22mm cut in LASIK
|Blade LASIK||Bladeless LASIK||ReLEx SMILE|
|Incision on cornea||20mm||20 mm||2 mm|
|Flap||Flap created with microkeratome blade||Flap created with Micron level precision laser||No Flap|
|Method of reshaping cornea||Ablation (Burns tissue)||Ablation (Burns tissue)||Non ablative|
|Complications||Flap tear button hole incomplete or inconsistent flap possible||Negligible||Negligible|
|Chance of flap dislocation||++||+||No Flap so|
No possibility of dislocation
|Customization||Not possible||Possible||Not required|
|Thin Corneas||Difficult to treat with sufficient safety||Can usually be treated||Safest option for thin corneas|
|Spectacle number recurring||Higher chance with higher number||Similar to LASIK with Blade||Minimal chance of any regression|
|Safety for sports and adebture||Not preferable||Not preferable||Preferable|
Because of No Flap
